Papilla Preservation and Tunneling Technique in Root Coverage - Part 2: The Use of AlloDerm

Description:
In part 2 of this instructional surgical video series, Dr. Edward Pat Allen describes in great detail the utilization of AlloDerm techniques in root coverage of multiple adjacent recession defects. In this section, emphasis is placed on shaping and sizing the AlloDerm as well as the micro-suturing techniques that optimize stabilization of the flap and the Alloderm.

Questions & Comments
David Furnari - (12/4/2016 11:20 PM)

I noticed that Dr Allen pointed out the difference between the basement membrane side and the connective tissue side of the alloderm. He did not make it clear if he prefers the CT side ( CT side does soak up blood) facing the mobilized tissue for new blood supply or facing the remaining periosteum and bone?

Maurice Salama - (3/21/2016 9:28 AM)

Randall; Great question. The best way to manage that situation is to restore the carious root lesion with glass ionomer and NOT composite resin. Glass ionomer can have a connective tissue attachment while composite can only manage a long junctional epithelial attachment which is much more fragile. Hope that helps. Dr. Salama

Randall Krebs - (3/20/2016 8:42 PM)

If there were a carious lesion on the root surface, say just inferior to the crown margin in the video (or on the mesial aboutment of a 4-5 unit bridge that you didn't want to remove), could that alloderma attach to the restoration or do you need cementum only? How would one regaining an attachment over a restoration if a lesion described above were present?

Maurice Salama - (1/26/2014 8:32 PM)

Although I do perform it differently, no denying the nice step by step surgical techniques displayed here by Dr. Allen. Thanks Dr. Salama

Richard Stanley - (1/21/2013 12:26 AM)

Excellently presented for training and developing skills for the doctor and assistant Truly a teaching video and one the surgical team can watch, learn from and replicate. Thank you.

Thank you Dr. Allen. good clinical presentation..

Andy Lewis - (9/13/2012 12:09 PM)

This is a different technique than I have seen him present in the past. In the last year I have seen him use the continuous sling suture capturing both the graft and the advancing flap. This seems like an older technique. Does it matter which we use?

Manuel De LA ROSA - (9/3/2012 8:24 PM)

Excellent suture teaching Dr Allen.

Edison Louie - (8/4/2012 9:36 PM)

Nice presentation. Shouid produce excellent results. Any comments on using Zimmer Dermis vs. AlloDerm?

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics Premium Member Content

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
Tooth preparations without a defined finish line have been termed in several different ways, such as knife edge, feather edge, or shoulderless. From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary prosthodontics will be presented in light of recently published literature.

This investigation was conducted on seven individuals referred for treatment of moderate adult periodontitis. Twenty-eight sites with an average probing depth of 5.6 ± 0.9 mm were evaluated. One tooth per jaw quadrant was randomly assigned to receive one of the following treatments: (I) no treatment, i.e., control; (II) saline irrigation; (III) tetracycline irrigation and (IV) scaling and root planing (SC/RP). A plaque control program was instituted one week prior to the experimental period and reinforced…

Periodontal Probing: Probe Tip Diameter

Periodontal Probing: Probe Tip Diameter
Background: Periodontal probing is one of the most common methods used in diagnosing periodontal disease. The purpose of this study was to determine the importance of the diameter of periodontal probing tips in diagnosing and evaluating periodontal disease. Methods: The literature discussing periodontal probe diameters in human, dog, and monkey studies was reviewed and compared. Tip diameters varied from 0.4 to over 1.0 mm in these studies. Probe advancement between the gingiva and the tooth is determined…
